A Note from Dr. Tuttle

tuttlefig11For 20 years I have kept this gold panner on my office desk.

I grew up in Placerville, in the heart of gold rush history. I keep this figure on my desk to remind me to work hard. Success does not come easy, just as the early gold miners discovered.

When I see this figure, I am committed to do what it takes and work hard and it reminds me to be grateful for everything that I have because I could lose it all.
